There was a time when i started to call my bike Claudia. I even had a sticker with that name on the bike. During an eight hour spin the chain on that bike had burst three times. After that a friend said to me the bike was as touchy as my girlfriend. Can you guess what her name was?
Not really that funny but puberty was in full effect at that time.

Agree . Maybe we should set fire to the people who refer to anything except the ropes on a boat as " rig " .

I reserve a certain kind of hatred to people who say " push bike " they are always people with twist wrist bikes who seem to think that the first bike came with a motor :lol:
